Ronaldo held a referendum on Monday night (20) about the fan’s preference for Cruzeiro’s “home” location and was surprised by the result.% Of the 254 fans who voted chose Betim instead of Mineiro.
The referendum was lively for just one minute and was held in the final minutes of many SAF Cruzeirense allies, that is, it was not a time when it had a large fan base. However, the vote between Betim and Mineiro had 254: 193 votes.
As a result of the vote, Ronaldo said he was surprised and promised Cruzeiro fans that he would discuss the matter further next Friday (24). According to him, there will be news soon.
“Seventy-six percent? “Tell me everything here. But I’m sure we are working hard and we will choose the best option for Cruzeiro fans,” Ronaldo said.
Studio at Betim
Betim Mayor, Vittorio Medioli (neutral), said, at a press conference last Wednesday (15), that he would present to Ronaldo, the owner of 90% of the SAF do Cruzeiro shares, a project to build a stadium in PTB Suburb , 1.5 km from the Partage store, in downtown Belo Horizonte. Raposa would not need to invest in the project and would receive commercial rights that could be traded.
The stadium would be hosted by Arena da Baixada, in Atltico-PR, with a capacity of 45,000 fans for sports and 52,000 for concerts. For the mayor, the stadium would be used only as a place for parties and entertainment. No financial feasibility study was presented to the media.
The alliance would be similar to what is happening between Palmeiras and WTorre, in So Paulo. “Cruzeiro will have the same property and rights as Palmeiras in Allianz Parque, 80% stake in the box office and at no cost. This is a preliminary proposal and should be discussed,” the mayor said.
For the construction, the money will come from R $ 450 million in public and private sector partnerships. The mayor said he has already received traders to discuss the project. According to him, the international group, whose name has not been disclosed, would like what was discussed by the city hall. However, nothing was signed.
Medioli said he would meet with Ronaldo “in the future” to address the issue.
